Hi there, I was wondering if you can help me. I am getting a new Laptop and was wondering, what is the easiest way to transfer everything ZL Origin related from the old to the new computer. I honestly do not want to download everything again.
Must I re install the client and zl origin? Can I simply cut /paste those files from my program files and Desktop? 
Please advise Smile Hmmm, sure? Thank you.

When you have a pirated version of the Sims 4 you can transfer the file The Sims 4 from program files to you new computer via f.e. an external disk.

For ZLOrigin all you have to transfer (or re-download) is the folder ZL-system.
Then of course you must re-install The Sims 4 on your new computer.

I think this guide here is what Tarac was referring to:

Thank sguys, what I ment was I have the zl Origin-sims 4 game installed on my C drive of Laptop 1 ( old ) I now want to move that file (Origin Games) which only contains The sims 4from ZL Origin sims 4 ) to my new Laptop. ( laptop 2 ) without having to download the complete ZL Origin all over again.
Apparantly one can do that with the legit Origin games.
My G4TW sims 4 is located on an external harddrive, from which I play.
Hope this explains it a bit better Smile

1. Copy ZClient and the game.
2. Download ZInstaller.bat, move it to your game installation folder and run as administrator.
3. Install ZLOrigin.
4. Run ZClient and then ZLOrigin.

I took ZInstaller.bat from official ZLOrigin Discord channel and modified it a bit to let you choose the language.

The Sims 4 via ZLOrigin creates an entry in the register.
When you want to use the ZLOrigin version of the Sims 4 without a renewed download on your new computer, you must:

1. Make a copy of the entry for the Sims 4 from your old computer HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE ->SOFTWARE ->Maxis ->The Sims 4 by rightclicking on that The Sims 4 folder and select Export.
2. Copy this exported entry to your new computer.
3. On your new computer double-click on it to have it installed in your register.
4. In the entry HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE ->SOFTWARE ->Maxis ->The Sims 4 you see Install Dir
5. Copy your The Sims 4 folder for the ZLOrigin version from your old computer to exactly the same location as mentioned in Install Dir (you probably have to create that folder manually)
6. On the new computer install Zclient and ZLOrigin
7. On the new computer Log in on Zclient and click on the shortcut for ZLOrigin
8. In ZLOrigin click on the word Origin (left top) ->Application Settings -> Advanced.
9. Change "your games will be installed to the following location" to the location of your Install Dir without the "The Sims 4". If the entry reads f.e. D:\Program Files\The Sims 4, type D:\Program Files\
10. Make shortcut from TS4 or TS4_x64 for your desktop.

You should now be able to play the ZLOrigin version in the usual manner

I wrote a small anecdote in another thread here:

While I can't quite tell if this works in all cases (with Windows 10), maybe that is something you want to take note of, nonetheless. Edit: no, I don't actually think you should use your current situation as an opportunity to test this theory of mine. Please use the suggestions from the previous commenters here, and only experiment if you have 'nothing to lose' - in a future situation, if it presents itself.

Hi there, I have done and completed the deed. Worked 100%. I went with taracs explanation, read something similar about other origin. So it works great. Thanks again all of you. Dedicated to Carlos Heeeeeey, Macarena
